Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ LP Just Touched Down on Apple Music | @S_C_ @AppleMusic #JayZ444 Bradford J. Howard July 6, 2017 Album Streams, Music 2 Comments Jay-Z’s 13th studio album begins its spread to other streaming services today, starting on Apple Music. It’s crazy to think about it, but a week ago today, the Internet was scrambling all over each other with the release of Jay-Z’s much-awaited ‘4:44’ album. The man born Shawn Corey Carter continued his penchant to make his album releases “events” of a sort, this time partnering with Sprint to offer users a six-month trial with his TIDAL streaming service and exclusive access to the new LP. In the seven days since its initial release, ‘4:44’ has been lauded as one of Jay’s best albums. It may not be Top 3 or even Top 5 just yet, but there’s consensus that it’s one of the artist’s most personal audio ventures ever. Our own Brandon Caldwell said Jay-Z “bared his soul” on the album. Oh, and OG Ron C and the Chopstars purpled up the project in record time for the Fourth of July. So if you had TIDAL, you got the goods – and the first of set of visuals Jay-Z has planned for all ten of ‘4:44’s’ tracks. If you didn’t? Then you had to make use of TIDAL’s 30-second audio snippets, sign up (prior to midnight Friday), or phone a friend. Until now. ‘4:44’ may have been exclusively premiered through TIDAL, but it’s no longer a TIDAL only release. The album will be made available across streaming services in the weeks to come, with Apple Music getting the first “blessing” from Jay-Z. Spotify, Amazon Music and other streaming services are slated to be granted access sooner than later, as well. In the event you haven’t already – or only signed up for TIDAL’s free trial – you can now stream Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ via Apple Music below and buy it now on iTunes here. As a bonus, Hov’s extremely creative “The Story of O.J.” visual, also previously only available to TIDAL users, can be watched on Apple Music here. Its “Footnotes” breakdown, of course, remains TIDAL only.
